Indoor rock climbing has really become one of those activities that a lot of people are really into lately. And I am guilty as charged. Apparently I missed the boat a few years back and just jumped on now.
That being siad I've only been a few times, but as always, found a way to make it a little more interesting, not that it isn't already...
I went again tonight, straight for the same climb that gave me a tough time the last time, got a little further though tonight. After spending a good two hours trying various climbs (I still haven't figured out all the terminology) I decided it was time to switch things up a bit. My poor climbing partner has no idea how crazy I really am.
1. Climb to the top without allowing my right foot to step on any holds, just the wall.
2. Climb to the top without allowing my left hand to use any of the holds, just flat on the wall.
3. Speed Climb (if you'll call it that) as many climbs to the top as you can in five minutes (while being safe of course).
Great times, if this is your thing give it a go, and let me know how you do. It's slightly addicting.
